Over the weekend, Nancy posted about ice cream flavors inspired by children’s books. Well, as you guys must know by now, I love food more than life itself (NOT an exaggeration!), so of course I wanted to get in on the action — but I didn’t want to be a copycat.
So instead, I’ve come up with some savory dishes based on kids’ books. Bon appetit!
Baby-Sitters Club Sandwich
Double decker of Stoneybrook turkey, honey-glazed bacon, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and mayo between slices of fluffy white bread.
Percy Jackson’s Sea of Muenster
Spicy cheese fondue, with strips of Greek flatbread for dipping. (Titan Special: Served with a side of mutton.)
Melting Maggie Beans
Soy cheese, melted over a bed of black beans, lean chicken, and veggies in a baked tostada shell.
8th Grade Super Hero Sandwich
Salami, bologna, provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions, and seasoning on a 12-inch roll. (Available as a 6-inch, for those who get queasy when they eat too much.)
The Grapes of Wrap
Mixed greens tossed with red grapes, pears, walnuts, dried cranberries, blue cheese, and a sherry shallot vinaigrette and rolled in a spinach wrap. (All produce and cheese sourced from California.)
Just don’t forget to save room for dessert!
